The Hysterical Ravings of Smokers
The Asian Badger writes one of my favorite Wisconsin blogs, but one of his latest posts "Seig Doyle" is simply ridiculous. As the title implies, he compares Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle's plan to ban smoking in all public buildings, workplaces, restaurants and taverns to something the Nazis would do. Let's see...Hitler killed at least 11 million people. Doyle wants to prohibit Wisconsinites from doing something in public that will not only kill them, but could kill innocent bystanders. That's comparable.
Look, I'm no fan of the nanny state, but to compare a smoking ban to the work of the Nazis is not only ridiculous, it's insulting to everyone who went through real suffering and hardship at the hands of Hitler. To escape the Nazis, Jews, Gypsies, Poles, Catholics and the von Trapp family gave up everything and risked their lives. To escape of the wrath of Herr Doyle's brownshirts, Wisconsinites just have to go home or gasp!, go outside.
Suck it up.

|You missed the point. The point of the Pol Pot (Doyle) administration is to raise taxes on EVERYYHING.
Why not tax Red Meat, booze, beer, fast food, Neuske's Bacon, sex, red meat, cigars, hell, everything.
My point is that Pol Pot is a sham.
